Birgitte Hjort Sorensen. Lady Justice Hallett. Raising children in Fiji and China. Michelle Young. Family politics at Christmas. Aspergers in women and girls. With Jane Garvey.
Birgitte Hjort Sorensen on Danish TV drama Borgen and playing Virgilia in Coriolanus. Michelle Young tells Jane about her 'fight for equality' in one of the UK's most colourful divorce cases. Child care around the world - we hear very different experiences in Fiji and China. And, love it or loathe it, the scrunchie is back. We talk about the best way to wear a scrunchie and if it's really fashionable to tie your hair back like its 1985 with Amber Jane Butchart and Leillah Sekalala. Singer Susan Boyle has revealed she has Aspergers, a form of Autism. Why is the condition so hard to diagnose in women and what is the impact of finding out later in life? Sarah Hewitt and Dr Judith Gould, from the National Autistic Society Lorna Wing Centre for Autism discuss. And the politics of a family Christmas, with Ulrika Johnson.
